5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Professional Communication |

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

These tools are mostly web-based and provide ways in which students can visually represent their ideas. 

Stephan Hughes's curator insight, October 21, 2014 9:27 AM

The 5 Key Ingredients of Great Infographics

The 5 Key Ingredients of Great Infographics | Professional Communication |
Everyone wants a great infographic. Generic as it sounds, it's overwhelmingly true.

Commissioners — the companies that hire designers or design firms to create infographics — want great results, whether it’s social media sharing, coverage by large websites and media or even achieving specific goal conversion rates. Designers want to work on and ultimately create a great piece that they are proud to include in their portfolio. And end users… well, they just like to look at great things that are beautiful, informative, original and shareable, ideally all at once. So how do you make a great infographic?

Much has been discussed about creating viral infographics and the role that story, data and design play, but viral doesn’t always equal “great” in a more conservative sense: a solid, informative, ethical piece that is beautifully designed and flawlessly executed.

Creating an infographic that is successful in the eyes of the client, design firm and audience is often elusive — but not impossible. At, the process starts out each project trying to do just that, and from the most successful projects (and the experience of going through not-so-successful ones), they extrapolated what are the key ingredients of producing infographics with the desired results.

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics

Maybe you want create your own infographic, here 10 tools to support you to do it. [note mg]


Information graphics, visual representations of data known as infographics, keep the web going these days. Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.


Who can resist a colourful, thoughtful venn diagram anyway? In terms of blogging success, infographics are far more likely to be shared than your average blog post. This means more eyeballs on your important information, more people rallying for your cause, more backlinks and more visits to your blog. In short, a quality infographic done well could be what your blog needs right now.
